Where To Undertake Advanced Career Training
Advanced career training can help you to break into a profession which might otherwise have been closed to you for lack of opportunities, or it can allow you to progress in your existing career. Depending on the industry you want to enter, there may or may not be a requirement for a university education laid down by government legislation. If there is, you can train to meet it, and if not, you can approach training in a different way to give employers what they need.
The highest level of career training possible is, of course, the university degree. This will open more doors for you than any other qualification or accreditation ever could. That is not to say that it is necessary, or even useful, in qualifying for all careers, and there may even be cases where it will get in the way and make a potential employer think you are over-qualified. The most advanced medical careers have a legal requirement for a degree education, and there are many other high level jobs where it is virtually impossible to gain entry without one. A university degree demands a high level of commitment, ability and dedication, and it is also expensive. Online study programs have made degree courses more accessible to many students, but the demands are still high.
Many other high level training centers are either set up by employers themselves or by someone in very close contact with the employers. This happens in industries which are expanding and where there is a constant need for new highly trained personnel. The employers do not want to leave their future to chance, instead they want to have a significant input into the way future workers are trained to make sure that they will be able to come straight in and do a job. The information technology sector is the one where this happens most, and there are many independent learning centers where you can train for a Microsoft certification.
Of course, advanced career training cannot help you overcome the need for a degree if that is a legal requirement, as it is with the medical profession. What it can do is help you to train for a lower level career in the same area, with the possibility of going forward to university at the end. There is not only an increasing demand for doctors, surgeons and pharmacists, there is also an increasing demand for those who work under them. This is because they need to be able to offload more routine tasks so that they can concentrate on the jobs which only they can do.
This creates opportunity for anyone who wants to become an assistant or technician and work their way up from there. These assistants are even used in some basic level advisory roles where they interact directly with the public. While you are working as an assistant, it is possible to be studying part time towards the university degree which will allow you to progress to the next level. This will involve a considerable amount of hard work on your part, so be sure you are ready for it.
Whether you choose to undertake advanced career training in a university setting or a specialist center, there will come a time when you will need to refresh your skills and take some further training. This has been happening for years in any career where technology has been making an impact, and there are few where it has not to some degree. Jobs which were once carried out manually now use high tech equipment and demand new skills. Any refreshing of what you already have can be carried out in the same centers as your advanced career training.Written by Jason Hobbes.
